Camina el Autor: The New Chronicle and Good Government by Guaman Poma de Ayala

Camina el Autor: The New Chronicle and Good Government by Guaman Poma de Ayala was an exhibition that showcased the work of Peruvian historian and illustrator Felipe Guaman Poma de Ayala (1534-1615), which detailed an ambitious account of the whole Pre-Hispanic Andean history, the emergence of the Inca Empire and the impact of the Spanish conquest of Peru since 1532 seen through the eyes of indigenous Incan people. The exhibition featured 32 panels of images with accompanying texts reproduced from the original manuscript, known to be of the most distinctive and historically reliable sources of early Peruvian history and culture.  The project commemorated 40 years of Peru-Singapore diplomatic relations and honoured the longstanding relationship between NAFA and the Embassy of Peru.
